Rangers recall Brady Skjei

Posted by: | Comments (2)

The Rangers have recalled defenseman Brady Skjei to replace the injured Ryan McDonagh for tonight’s game against Tampa Bay. McDonagh was injured blocking a shot last night, and even if the injury isn’t long term, it was expected that he would sit tonight. This is Skjei’s third stint with the Rangers, playing well in his second call up.

The Rangers have returned defenseman Brady Skjei and goalie Magnus Hellberg to the Hartford Wolf Pack of the AHL. Both were emergency call ups for injuries to various Rangers. With the Rangers off until Saturday afternoon, it is likely that their current stints are over.

Hellberg did not play in his stint, serving as the backup to Antti Raanta. Skjei played in last night’s game in Buffalo, and did not register a point.

This move also saves cap space, but Alain Vigneault said Henrik Lundqvist is likely to play Saturday. Skjei may be back if Marc Staal or Dylan McIlrath are still out, but that’s unlikely.

Rangers return Brady Skjei to Hartford

Posted by: | Comments (7)

The Rangers have returned Brady Skjei to Hartford, which was an expected move following last night’s game. Skjei was an emergency call up to replace Marc Staal, and played 22 minutes in last night’s loss. The ice time was indicative of Skjei’s play, as he had a very strong game, including significant time on the penalty kill.

Rangers recall Brady Skjei

The Rangers have recalled defenseman Brady Skjei from Hartford for tonight’s game in New Jersey. No official word has been given, but one of the six healthy defensemen (not including Ryan McDonagh) will not be able to go tonight. This is Skjei’s second call up and his third game with the Rangers this season.

The Rangers have made a trio of roster moves in preparation for tonight’s game in Winnipeg. Brady Skjei was returned to Hartford and Chris Summers was called up. My guess here is that the Rangers want a steadier presence in the lineup until Kevin Klein returns, as Skjei was prone to a few mistakes in his first call up. Could have just been jitters.

Magnus Hellberg was also called up to replace the injured Antti Raanta.

Skjei's time is coming, and soon

Skjei’s time is coming, and soon

On the heels of a disastrous trip to western Canada that represents the low point of a troubling first quarter, it appears the Blueshirts have reached an impasse wherein they are in danger of taking a clear step back in the contender pecking order. The growing warts in the lineup have deteriorated the team’s quality of play and the Rangers have come crashing down to earth where it appears they’ll stay unless changes are made.

The biggest issues are defenders Marc Staal and Dan Girardi, who for so long ably handled critical roles as stalwarts in the rearguard. But there are also team-wide problems including a less effective forecheck in part due to the loss of Carl Hagelin, frustrating mental mistakes defensively up and down the lineup and nonexistent production offensively from some of the team’s most talented players.

Rangers call up Brady Skjei

Posted by: | Comments (17)

The Rangers have called up defenseman Brady Skjei for tonight’s game against the Edmonton Oilers, per Sean Hartnett. The 2012 first round pick is leading all Hartford Wolf Pack defensemen in scoring, and is by far the best defenseman on the roster. Skjei will take Dan Girardi’s place in the lineup.

The Rangers will be without Dan Girardi for tonight’s game against Edmonton, which means the Rangers will need to call up a defenseman to fill out the roster. With Jarret Stoll on the waiver wire (update on that at noon), the Rangers have enough cap space to call up any defenseman for the short and long term. Considering it’s Girardi, and he’s a bit of an iron man made from robot parts, he likely will just miss this game. But there are a few options in Hartford that make sense.

Raphael Diaz

He’s hurt. He’s not the call up. But Alain Vigneault hinted he would be had he been healthy.

Per the Rangers Twitter, Dan Girardi is day-to-day with knee swelling. He will not play tomorrow. Kevin Klein is still out, so the Rangers will need to call someone up for tomorrow’s game. Since Raphael Diaz is hurt, here’s hoping it’s Brady Skjei.
